Written answers (Question to Education)

I can confirm to the Deputy that the school referred to has been approved for a project under my Department's Additional Accommodation Scheme 2021. This project will provide for a two classroom SEN base and has been devolved for delivery to the school authority.

This project was approved in January 2021 and is in the early design stage. It is not possible to provide a timeline for the project’s completion at this point.

I can advise the Deputy that temporary accommodation has also been approved as part of this project to cater for the school’s needs in September 2021.
